Fender’s latest artist signature models showcase the versatility of Fender’s sound across genres, while paying tribute to some of the music industry’s most-celebrated players and their vibrant stories; they include the Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster, George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster, JMJ Road Worn Mustang Bass and EOB Sustainer Stratocaster.

 

“We’re debuting a record number of artist signature models at Summer NAMM this year," said Justin Norvell, SVP Fender Products, honoring some of the most respected players in the music world. The lineup—spanning country, alternative and rock—is a testament to the genre-transcending music these artists have all inspired, and Fender has and continues to enable.”

 


 


 Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster (2017年第四季開賣)

 

 
 

The colorfully decorated Strat that the guitar god played during his breakout performance at the Monterey Pop Festival is famous for its short lifespan: Hendrix lit it on fire at that celebrated show. Replicas of its flower-power design are still popular – John Mayer plays one.

 

It's been 50 years since Jimi Hendrix took the world by storm with his incredible Monterey Pop Festival performance, which he concluded with the sacrificial burning of his now-iconic hand-painted Stratocaster. Destroyed during the fiery culmination of his set, this one-of-a-kind guitar survived only in photos and film.

 

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this milestone in music history, Fender created the limited-edition Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster. A trio of vintage-style single-coil Stratocaster pickups give this Strat its classic Fender sound. Bell-like and articulate, it has plenty of singing sustain for soloing. The “C”-shaped maple neck bears a vintage-style 7.25”-radius pau ferro fingerboard with 21 vintage-sized frets for a playing feel just like the original.

 

The six-screw synchronized tremolo is perfect for unleashing dive-bombs and other sonic expression. An homage to Hendrix’s spectacular Strat, right down to the hand-painted nail-polish artwork that burned its way into our memories, the Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster also features an exclusive etched Hendrix neck plate.

 

 

 


 

George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster (2017年第四季開賣)

 

 

To honor Harrison's venerable career, Fender has created the George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster, a limited edition commemoration that embodies Harrison’s elegantly restrained playing style and sound. Based on the original Telecaster created for Harrison by luthier Roger Rossmeisl, this model remains true to its heritage with a classic look and the unique tone only an all-rosewood guitar can produce. The body is chambered for reduced weight and increased resonance.

 

Other features include a rosewood neck with a laminated 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard and a custom neck plate engraved with an Om symbol. A classic in every way, this refined instrument was born in the era that defined rock n' roll. Harrison’s legacy is one of innovation and creativity, and the rosewood Telecaster became one of his primary instruments of choice. Only 1,000 units will be available worldwide.

 

 


 

EOB Sustainer Stratocaster (2017年第四季開賣)

 

 


 

 Ed has kitted his Strat out with an intriguing combo of pickups: a Seymour Duncan JB Jr humbucker in the bridge, Texas Special single coil in the middle and Fernandes Sustainer in the neck, which is where the model gets its name.

 

Control over the Sustainer’s infinite sustain comes via an on/off switch, intensity knob and three-position switch, to adjust between fundamental-only, harmonic-only or blend modes.

Elsewhere, there’s a vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, a ‘10/56 V’ neck profile, 21 narrow-jumbo frets and a synthetic bone nut.

 

Ed’s model is also notable for eschewing the any form of signature on the instrument, instead opting for a custom ‘Flower of Life’ engraved neck plate.

This is surely the most intriguing signature Strat Fender has produced for some time, and more importantly, it’s the first piece of Radiohead signature gear ever.

 

You'll have to be patient, though: the EOB Sustainer Stratocaster is due to land on 14 November for £949 - true love waits, after all. Now, any chance of reissuing Jonny Greenwood’s favoured Telecaster Plus while you’re at it, Fender?

 Brad Paisley Road Worn® Telecaster® (2017年第四季開賣)

 

 

Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) today announced its collaboration with three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning and multiplatinum-selling country music superstar, singer, and celebrated guitarist Brad Paisley for his own artist signature guitar: the Brad Paisley Road Worn® Telecaster®. Fender and Paisley united to create a classic and timeless guitar reminiscent of one of his prized instruments in his guitar arsenal, his silver sparkle Telecaster®. The collaboration will be officially revealed at Summer NAMM 2017 in Nashville, Tenn.

 

"The best thing about having a Fender Signature Telecaster is the unwavering quality associated with the brand's legacy and confidence that I'm introducing a great guitar at an incredible price point," says Paisley. "I set out to create a guitar that was accessible for the vast majority of young people out there, who I hope to inspire to change the world with musical dreams."

 

In addition to Paisley's six-string virtuosity is his knack for an enduring country hit. His inimitable playing has underscored writing and performing that yielded three GRAMMY® Awards, two American Music® Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music® Awards, 14 Country Music Association® Awards (including Entertainer of the Year) and 24 No. 1 world-renowned hits. LOVE AND WAR, Paisley's newest album, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, marking his 9th consecutive studio album entry at the chart's top position.

 

The instrument itself reflects Paisley's dynamic persona and showcases his shared mission with Fender: to inspire the next generation of players. The body is custom-made from a lightweight and resonant paulownia center core with spruce top and back, while a custom wound '64 Tele Bridge Pickup expands the sonic palette with just the right amount of rough and tumble energy. Paisley carefully chose an enhanced "V" neck shape, making for a comfortable grip. The medium jumbo frets are perfect for quick picking and those bluesy over-the-neck bends. To cap it off, Roadworn silver sparkle finish, aged hardware, and a paisley pickguard make this guitar worthy of legends.

 

"Brad's influence has reached every corner of modern guitar playing realm and music at large across all genres – not just country," adds Justin Norvell, Senior Vice President, Fender Products. "Not only is it a beautiful guitar, but it has some amazing, unique features that we developed directly with him, namely the lightweight body and hot pickups. We amalgamated features from several of his favorite guitars, resulting in a truly compelling instrument we hope will empower players everywhere."
